Re: Passages relating to the Teacher of Righteousness.

I'm not at home with my books; I may check later. I can say that in an old article I argued that the Teacher of Righteousness was Judah the Essene. Though that article is not perfect (for example, the page one reference to Josephus, Antiquities should be corrected to read Ant. 13.xi.2; #311), I stil...

Re: report: doctoral dissertation on "secret gospel" claims not a fake
